Schumer lauds Fairness Doctrine 2.0 on election day

It's election day and the Democrats seem destined for a clean sweep. In a move of giddy candor, Sen. Chuck Schumer told Fox News that he's all for the return of the Fairness Doctrine. Read the Hill's article here. Evidently Schumer equates free political speech with pornography.

At least liberals are being forthright about their intentions. Look for the battle over government censorship of the press to begin early next year. And let me tell you this, Senator, regardless of your majorities on Capital Hill, those of us who believe in freedom of the press are not going to let you tear up the First Amendment without a fight.
